California Air Quality Concerns


Air Quality Alerts are in place across central California through this weekend as wildfires continue to burn across the northern part of the state.

The smoke from these wildfires will continue to drift southward throughout the week causing dangerous air quality especially for those in at-risk groups.

The National Weather Service in Hanford, CA warns, “Exposure to particle pollution can cause serious health problems, aggravate lung disease, cause asthma attacks and acute bronchitis, and increase risk of respiratory infections.”

Those with heart or lung problems are urged to avoid prolonged exposure to the outdoors and limit any strenuous outdoor activities.

California firefighters have been making progress against the numerous wildfires over the past few days. One of the largest fires, the Tubbs fire, has burned over 36,000 acres but it is now 82% contained. Unfortunately, 40 deaths are now attributed to the wildfires. Thousands of structures have been damaged or destroyed.
